're not competitive. in huge areas of the country. some of the biggest states, california, new york, illinois, we're not competing anymore. we don't even advertise there. once you give up those electoral votes, we're getting down to where we have to -- we're in ohio every time, we have to win florida and ohio every time. what we need to do is be competitive throughout the united states, and i think young people want a less aggressive foreign policy. they don't want to put people in 20 years in jail for marijuana use or nonviolent crimes. and i think they want a little bit different approach to immigration. >> okay. you say you want to be part of the national dialogue. perhaps a bigger part of it. we shall see. senator rand paul, thank you very much, we appreciate it. >> thank you. >>> and now to the face to face meeting today between u.n. ambassador susan rice and her chief republican critics. ambassador rice on capitol hill, just this morning, to meet with the people you see on your screen here. you have senator john mccain, lindsey graham, kelly ayotte. she went to address concerns they have ov

in our state delegations and across the country. i'm very proud that in california our delegation of democrats is a majority of women, not even counting our two senators, senator feinstein and senator boxer so women are empowered in california. i'm also want to acknowledge that although our numbers are great here, two of our colleagues have gone on to the senate, senator-elect tammy baldwin and we're very proud of that.
